about

Consumers facing complex, critical, or chronic conditions have not readily had access to resources that enable them to understand their situation or the treatment options available to them in order to make informed decisions about their care.

During this session attendees will hear how mobile-enabled video technology can quickly connect health plan members to the right resources at the right time for virtual consultations. These personalized discussions educate the member about their individual health care situation and provide insight on the latest evidence-based research and treatment options allowing them to make informed decisions.

By attending this webinar, attendees will learn:

  • How mobile-enabled video technology informs complex care decisions at scale
  • How national health insurance providers have deployed this service as an effective utilization management strategy to save over $10M by avoiding unwarranted surgery
  • The broad applicability of this platform and service – from critical care to elective surgery
  • Future use cases of this technology and service.
